2013 o7

The 85th version of the Academy Awards – that annual self-congratulatory show business industry shindig where industry executives and mucky-mucks show up in their limos to pat themselves on the back in front of a live television viewing audience – is over for another year and, as usual, nobody in Hollywood is ever completely happy […]

I know that the older you get the more time seems to compress, but wow did Katsucon 19 seem to fly by on President’s Day weekend. The weather was also erratic, but thankfully the Gaylord National is big enough that people don’t have to go outside for anything if they don’t want to. With the […]

Well, it finally happened.  After months of speculation, leaks, then an official announcement, we’ve now witnessed Twilight Sparkle become an alicorn princess.  What did I think of how it was pulled off?  Aesthetically not too bad, story-wise exceptionally lifeless and didactic.  It was as if the whole “destiny” part was an afterthought compared to the […]

Think of it as a “what if” take […]
